Product Highlights
  • 6-Stop Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length
  • Schott Superwite Glass

The Formatt-Hitech 82mm HD ND 1.8 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 6 stop reduction in exposure. This 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or longer shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

This filter is constructed from Schott Superwhite glass to maintain high optical clarity and is set within a 4mm-thick metal filter ring.

1.8 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 6 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

    Comments about Formatt Hitech 82mm HD ND 1.8 Filter:

    I'm blown away as to why this filter doesn't have any front threads. It wasn't advertised as being "slim" or "thin," so why doesn't it have front threads? No, I don't want to stack filters, I just want to use a friggin' lens cap! Its really a pain having to unscrew the filter, put it in a case, and re-apply every time I want to move the camera with a lens cap on.

    That being said, the image quality is quite good. No color shift when the sun isn't in frame. Shooting directly into the sun you get a slight magenta shift to the resulting lens flare. I shoot mostly around 100ISO, f/16, 1/2 second shutter in full sun. Good shutter speed for blurring traffic and pedestrians in daytime urban landscape photography.

    Could also be good for blurring traffic at night. Does not vignette on a Canon 16-35 lens and 5DMK3 or 6D.
